Who will assist you

The IB involves a global network of talented individuals to assist schools throughout the authorization process and beyond.

Many IB staff are involved in designing the processes, managing information, and overseeing financial arrangements behind the scenes, but schools work most directly with regional IB staff and with members of the IB Educator Network (IBEN) who are experienced educators trained for their roles by the IB.
